obama. on the irs on the other hand, i do not know if i'll call of a full-blown scandal because both rds and the president are already cracking down thing this was wrong, obama has already fired -- well, two people have been asked to resign. obama has already announced who he is going to put into replace the -- as the new leader at the irs. i think that the consensus is that there is going to be more hearings and more discussion on what happened, but i do not think that it is going to hurt obama as badly as some may say. those hearings and discussions that are going to happen, what does this do to the president's blanket immigration, gun control, talk about moving forward from here for the president. guest: there is some irony in the fact that republicans are hitting him on one side over this triad, benghazi, and the irs, and the justice department soliciting reporters' phone records. you have republicans hitting the president on these issues. you have this happening on one hand. you have this image of republicans cracking down on the president and being tough, which people like in the p
's second term agenda? president obama under a cloud of scandal, as congress bears down on irs officials who targeted conservative groups. >> this week confirms everything that the american public believes. this is a huge blow to the faith and trust the american people have in their government. >> the key questions now -- who initiated the targeting and why? who else in the administration knew? and why was congress misinformed for so long? with us this morning, the president's senior adviser, dan pfeiffer, the republican leader in the senate, mitch mcconnell of kentucky, and the man leading a congressional investigation into the irs, chairman of the house ways and means committee, dave camp. and later the political fallout from benghazi and the justice department seizure of phone reports from the associated press. plus former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld returns to "meet the press." this time he's out of office and weighing in on the big issues in "rumsfeld's rules."
obama is already assuming the familiar crouch of a scandal struck second termer. is all of this going to put aside -- i think ron mentioned this earlier, lynn. is this going to hurt the president and his team in terms of moving forward on the things that he cares about and has made a priority for his second term? >> absolutely, chris. i don't see how it can't be at the least a major distraction. at the most you having these three issues, and the most important right now, the ones that i think everybody understands is the snooping on reporters' phone records. and the irs trying to influence or looking at any group, no matter what their politics are, tax exempt applications. people get this. so the issue isn't complicated. and it will make republicans in congress have every one of their themes, that seems to amplify that about overreaching of the obama administration. so, yes, it will slow down everything obama wants to do at least for now. >> lynn sweet, always great to have you on the program. ron fournier, thank you. good to see you. >>> one week from today the philadelphia abortion
that wall street would hope for a scandal, but might hope that the obama administration agenda mightot be furthered. >> i think they will. look, it's already been stalled. they've got such discord in washington, d.c., nothing is getting passed. all three of the last two term presidents had some type of scandal. none of them greatly affected the market either way. i don't think this does either. >> jonas, what do you think? >> you know, look, if the irs can get money, right or wrong, from people without having to raise the generalax rate, in theory, that's good for our debt and market. that said, this administration, love it or not, has been good for the stock market. you woul't want a president to see good returns on the mark to be in a scandal, have to leave office, that would not be good for the stock market. testifies bad fort market, we were down 50% over the last three years, then you can say yeah, this could be great if we got new leadership, but i don't think that is the case. >> toby? >> this story is not going away. the market probably needs a little rest here anyway. we get a
department should be the ones investigating the obama irs scandal. i can see why people would say that sounds a little bit fishy and probably does not give people the confidence they need to believe that it will be done fairly. >> there is the question you heard eric holder reference i do think we should be investigating or taking a look at these 501 c 4 corporations. what is that? what gets confusing when you use letters and numbers. what is it? the inspector general report goes through that in detail. 501 c 3's and those are true charities that want to be tax exempt. 501 c 4's which are sort of social advocacy groups. they are allowed like a crossroads g.p.s., american crossroads, karl rove's group, they are allowed to advocate for issues. they are allowed to take donations that are, you know, tax exempt and advocate for issues. they can't directly support a political candidate but they can advocate for issues. and the government, president obama doesn't like these 501 c 4's and he doesn't like their ability to spend to the extent that they can spend thanks to citizens united. now you hear
action immediately especially when you're dealing with three scandals calling for impeachment, calling for eric holder to resign. this is what ben mentioned yesterday. the best way obama can handle it is fire anyone who is involved in the scandal and say we're moving on. we're doing an investigation and whatever we can do fix the problem. >> mark: they really did get out in front of it in a sense not only calling for an investigation, but the firing. you feel as though they could have done a dance and kept the wolves at the door. >> it's amazing how quickly obama conceded to everything yes, this is wrong and i'm wondering if that's the right way to go. >> the way he's missing it is it's not going to work. this is something that you should do, and if the purpose is to get the heat off of you, it's not going to happen. that's not the opposition's objective. we know the politics of it. we want to get truth in there. well this is outrageous. how could you do something so partisan. we want this to be fix? no, they don't. they want this to continue to happen. >> mark: the detractors will not
foreign cash. that's next with bill moller. it's a scandalous week in washington. today, president obama will take questions at a news conference after revealing last night he has accepted the resignation of steve miller, the acting commssioner of the irs. the president called the misconduct of employees within the irs "inexcusable" for apparently putting extra scrutiny on tea party organizations applying for tax- exempt status. "americans have a right to be angry about it. the president is saying 'i will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but particularly the irs, given the power that it has and the reach that it has in all of our lives." meanwhile, lawmakers are calling for action. house speaker john boehner told reporters he wants to know who is going to jail for the scandal. as we know, the irs has been in trouble for partiality in investigating conservative groups. now it may be about to snoop on people like you. as it did with banks in switzerland, this government agency now has a summons to allow it to gather information on u.s. taxpayhers. jim duggan is an attorney

tonight in washington. where president obama finds himself in a veritable slum of scandals where with the irs targeting political o points. the the state department manipulating point, the post office sending pornography to people's homes addressed to somebody who didn't even order it. why would i order pornography, i means that's-- the last one is probably not an administration scandal, i just find it frustrating. all right. the president was fortunate yesterday that when he appeared before the press, he was kpd by british prime minister cameron. and a question limit of one. total from the entire american press corp. give it your best shot, guys. >> when did you first learn that the irs was targeting conservative political groups? do you feel that the irs betrayed the public a trust and what do you think the repercussions for these actions should be? >> jon: technically that was three questions. but obviously one general mill like toothpaste that includes fluoride and whitener, comes out of the same tube but provides triple protection. aquafresh. it's like brushing your teeth wi
in our system. they used the scandal to go after the president more broadly. by mitch mcconnell who told a group of conservatives on a conference call that the obama effort to shut up opponents is not limited. you remember the obama campaign last year published the list of eight business men who they believed were enemies and republicans rushed to condemn the president's abuse of power. >> he has extraordinary power and he is using it to investigate enemies. he sounds drunk on power for most americans. when they hear these types of stories. >> one of the most egregious use of powers, one of the counts against richard nixon was abuse of power by calling the irs to investigate. >> yes, that was former vice president dick cheney. they are trying to tie the scandal to the implementation of health care. >> the agent that is going to be responsible for implementing obama care that will mortify the american people. the whole episode reinforces and confirms the american people's worst fears about big government run amok. >> on saturday, lamar alexander compared kathleen sebelius for the implemen
't think this matters that much. i don't think this scandal imperils the presidency. the market doesn't care about the president, only the head of the fed. they're printing money. that's what this market cares about. if obama resigned tomorrow, the market would probably do nothing. >> neil: as long as bernanke stays. >> until joe biden steps up to the podium. >> i still think it will do nothing. >> neil: dagen? >> i worry what this irs scandal symbolizes about this unwieldy government, a government that's gotten so big. you're overweaning politicians, and that's how our taxpayer money is being spent. i don't know what will reverse that. that is not an environment where this country can prosper, where this country can continue to grow, and it foments the skierss of the american people to start new businesses. >> neil: i know you were around during that time, ben stein. what are the big differences? there are mumen multiple scandat only the irs, but the justice department targeting the ap, hitting companies to promote the health care law. i could go on and on and on. i think there are a
president obama is not directly involved in any of the quote, unquote scandals yet. >> we don't know that yet. >> neil: we don't know that yet. >> benghazi is not a scandal. it's inat the a incompetence anl mallfeasance. the irs has low level people that acted badly. >> don't blow off the political ramifications of this. let's face it. we have mid term elections coming up. i don't think this has a big impact on the economy or the markets for the reasons i laid out, but this is a political problem. the incompetence of the obama administration where one hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing, where the president appointseople that are idiotic, make idiotic mistakes. when benghazi is clely just a horrendous example of incompetence. that will reflect on the president and that will hurt him politically. >> sir, with great respect -- sir, with great respect to my colleagues, benghazi is not incompetence. benghazi is outright malfeasance, criminal cover up. >> i agree with you. >> that is so true. >> neil: go ahead, adam. >> what we're u all agreed on is there's a thin connection be
to the presidential's second-term agenda? president obama under a cloud of scandal, as congress bears down on irs officials who targeted conservative groups. >> this week confirms everything that the american public believes. this is a huge blow to the faith and trust the american people have in their government. >> the key questions now -- who initiated the targeting and why? who else in the administration knew? and why was congress misinformed for so long? with us this morning, the president's senior adviser, dan pfeiffer, the republican leader in the senate, mitch mcconnell of kentucky, and the man leading a congressional investigation into the irs, chairman of the house ways and means committee, dave camp. and later the political fallout from benghazi and the justice department seizure of phone records from the associated press. plus former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld returns to "meet the press." this time he's out of office and weighing in on the big issues in "rumsfeld's rooms: leadership lessons in politic, war and life." >> announcer: from nbc news in washington, the world's long
on your show several times trying to warn the american people what is going on with this obama administration, how many scandals does it take, to let american people know our country is headed down a very dangerous path. neil: this does call into question, who and what you can believe. not a great defense. the other is, old chicago politics style of keeping your enemies on watch. that is where it gets scary, no? >> right now i think there will be a big breach in this tha trut that we have with the government, government does not have a great approval rating to begin work congress with barely any approval. you will see, president obama's numbers probably go down because of this you will see the trust in government we should have, we should be able to trust our government, and to do them to 2 the right thing, you are going to have a lot of americans questioning that, as this story evolves i think we'll learn more and i think you will see this become a real issue to be play into 2014 election. neil: katrina, do you think this extends like watergate, a drip, drip of information. i
. it was a scandal that obama was taking too much credit. >> that's right. >> you're giving him too much credit bill. >> the number one target of maybe of all time. stop bragging about. >> bill: i keep coming back to if you really want to play games with the response, with americans getting killed by terrorists, four people were killed in benghazi. 3,000 people were killed on september 11th. so if you really want to play that game, i think republicans are on very, very thin ice. let's talk about something else. that was the first -- that's the first of our triple scandals. the second is the i.r.s. nobody is more angry about them yesterday than president obama. rightfully so. >> look, this is a problem. it is a problem for the i.r.s. but it is a bigger problem for the country and here is why. in the aftermath of citizens united, you saw this rash of these c-4 organizations who are social welfare groups in name only. and spend a lot of money on elections, try to influence these things with money that comes from who knows where. >> bill: they're political organizations. masser -- masquerading as goody-
is the larger thing here? does this scandal go to a character flaw about obama? does the narrative to use e.j. dionne's favorite word actually come together to some final point, and if it does, then you're going to have more political and historical resonance. you talk about monicagate. about the weakness for women. when you talk about iraq, that was about bush, all that we need in our gut, we don't need to actually need to read books and find out what's going on. this going to coalesce into something larger? i don't think so. i don't know if we have to wait to see, but nothing is there yet. and maybe it will come out and it will be incorrect but, you know, it's got to coalesce into something. >> i think you're both wrong. i think number one, there are 2.8 million people in the federal government. a range of activities at a low level that even an effective president will not know about. with regard to the doj investigation in particular, this has happened so far on the information flow exactly how it should. there are only seven people in the internal guidelines authorized to have contacts
. martha: all right. everybody, yet another scandal is now emerging this morning from the obama administration. the associated press says that the justice department secretly seized their phone records from reporters and editors. the news organization, very unhappy about this to say the least. they're calling it a massive and unprecedented intrusion, raising a lot of questions about freedom of the press and the first amendment. good morning, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. here in america's newsroom. >> i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer. top lawmakers want answers, they want them now, raising questions of abuses of power. speaker of the house, john boehner saying quote, they better have a damn good explanation. martha: add to that, new reports this morning that the irs scandal may be first bigger than expected. president obama also increasingly defensive in the news conference over the growing benghazi firestorm. we may find out how many scandals the white house can juggle at one time. we have fox team coverage of this. catherine herridge is on the justice department's snoop

obsession with creating a new watergate for president obama. we're throwing some sand in the gears of the gop scandal machine. >>> and angelina jolie's courageous choice. inspiring millions of women and putting a new focus on health care inequality in america. stay with us. oh this is lame, investors could lose tens of thousands of dollars on their 401(k) to hidden fees. is that what you're looking for, like a hidden fee in your giant mom bag? maybe i have them... oh that's right i don't because i rolled my account over to e-trade where... woah. okay... they don't have hidden fees... hey fern. the junk drawer? why would they... is that my gerbil? you said he moved to a tiny farm. that's it, i'm running away. no, no you can't come!

obama is expected to take questions about the irs scandal. of course, the president sacking the acting commissioner of the irs amid an outcry over revelations that the agency improperly targeted tea party supporte supporters for scrutiny. let's bring in larry kudlow. an awful lot of people are very angry. in fairness, on both sides of the divide about this. >> actually, that's interesting. most of this came against conservative groups, but we are uncovering some examples of liberal groups. as rick santelli has said that basically defunding these groups and taking them out of the election cycle, now, the fast majority were conservative groups, you can't let that happen. you know, in the usa, i guess it's like the inland revenue service. this is a very important agency and more than taxes is going to be running obama care, so that makes it. you can't have this kind of corruption and i like the fact that yesterday, the president sacked the acting director miller. he has many more people to sack, okay? that's very important. including this lois lerner. my opinion, he has to appoint a speci
for staying with us, i'm bill o'reilly. in the personal story segment tonight. perhaps president obama's biggest nightmare is republican congressman darrell issa, chairman of the house oversight and government reform committee. the congressman has been involved with benghazi, the fast and furious gun scandal and mr. obama's liberal appointments. the congressman joins us from washington. i think tonight we want to try to advance the story. as we all know the factor audience knows what has happened. president obama says he is going to fix it. the only thing he is not going to fix is benghazi. that's still very hurricaney. he will fix the irs. going to get to the bottom of the a.p. thing. might be justified. how do you see this thing going forward? does mr. obama, can you link him to anything that is going to be troublesome for him? >> well, certainly, bill, the first thing you have to remember is with fast and furious, after congress was lied to, the american people were lied to for 10 months. he asserted executive privilege and is not willing to turn over the actual records of those lie
